The Mark Hotel has been recently refurbished and I hesitated because it was lovely old European style hotel before with a wonderful lounge/bar and I hoped it's elegant yet understated ambiance wouldn't be ruined. But I have to say that the refurbishment is amazing and that they have done an excellent job. It is thoroughly modern, yet elegant with all the 'bell and whistles' of the 21st century. there's TV in the bathroom that is 'implanted' into the mirror....really cool! the bathrooms are state of the art. The power shower gives a new meaning to "power showers" I'm not even sure that kind of power is legal in NY. it was wonderful though. Our room was so nice and tastefully decorated that my boyfriend was considering redecorating his bedroom and bathroom in the same decor. the decoration, colors and amenities really gave the room a feeling of warmth and comfort even though it was not very large. It was a good size room though...for New York. In terms of the service although we did not use it much, I expect it was impeccable. certainly the concierge and front desk staff were wonderful and extremely efficient. they quickly got us tickets for a major Broadway show, although we did pay over the top price for the tickets.
The location of the Mark Hotel is to me the best ting about it. It's away from the bustling hustling crowds and chaos of New York City, situated in the an elegant and fairly quiet area in the upper east side. You're not made to feel like a tourist up here but rather like a resident of the neighborhood.
If you are looking for quiet discreet elegance then this hotel is perfect. Also if you are a cultural buff, then you will be within short walking distance to most of the major important museums of New York. And of course there is the shopping!!
I thoroughly recommend this Hotel to our European and international visitors with plenty of money. The fine restaurants, the upscale designer shopping, the culture and sophistication is spot on. One can always go slumming it down town or further uptown and then come back to the quiet repose of the Mark Hotel.
I understand they are are about to open up a five star restaurant on their premises. we will be coming back. Really 'cool' place . We loved it!
